India Against Corruption on Thursday rebutted Army's claims that it paid dues to a former NSG commando, who fought terrorists in the 26/11 attack and was invalidated from service after he became medically unfit, saying these are "white lies".

In a statement on behalf of Surender Singh, IAC claimed that army and government were only talking about sanctioning his pension and not actually given it to him.

The IAC said the government did not give it in writing to Singh that he has been sanctioned pension.

"Surender Singh has termed the claims of Army as white lies," the statement said.

On twitter, Arvind Kejriwal said army accepted all their allegations. "Pension has been sanctioned just now. So he was not getting it till now," he said.

He also claimed, "Army accepts that medical card was made in Oct 2012. This means he was getting treated from his own money so far."
